On the occasion of the centenary of the Armistice that ended the First World War, French President Emmanuel Macron organized an official ceremony with the participation of more than sixty world leaders. Macron's "peace show" and the significance of the imperialist war of 1914-1918 are commented by French communists.

Pierre Laurent, National Secretary of the French Communist Party (PCF), issued an article on November 7, where he underlined that soldiers who fought in the Great War were the first victims of the conflict between imperialist great powers in their quest for fulfilling their financial and strategic interests. Laurent expressed harsh criticism against the French leadership of the period who rejected their responsibility by condemning Germany as the scapegoat but who enjoyed at the same time the immense colonial domination that was in service of French imperialism. Laurent pointed out that all Great Powers, be it victorious or defeated, managed to arrive at a consensus in obstructing any revolutionary aspiration inspired by the October Revolution of 1917. Convinced by the necessity of respecting peoples' will and denying the idea of domination for a just and durable peace, Laurent concluded that to commemorate the Remembrance Day means a call for a firm struggle for peace.

KPP PolandStatement of the CP of Poland on the state celebrations of the independence day

In Poland, the 11th of November again became a pretext to promote the militarism and fascism. The authorities of the Polish state marched hand in hand with the nationalists. Once again the red and white banners serve as a cover-up for xenophobia, racism, and fascism. Poland's rulers once again use the nationalist euphoria in order to divert the attention from real social problems. The Polish state again gives the citizens nationalist paraphernalia instead of what they really need.

Take Your Hands Off The Trade Unions

This year Congresses of the Regional Trade Unions are held in a number of cities around Greece under the presence of private security, police, riot police and law enforcement forces after their direct invitation by the majority of the GSEE (GSEE is the General Confederation of Greek Workers, a member of ETUC)

The leaders of the GSEE in order to protect the orgy of election fraud they have set up jointly with the employers and the state, resort to methods of intimidation and repression. The government is using the support it is provided by the GSEE to impose barbaric anti-workers policy.
